Thanks to good filters in Feedly and staying off Twitter, I have no idea what was announced today. Super excited to be surprised when I catch up the iPhone X news after dinner.

If one preaches in an air conditioned, purpose built structure, to wealthy church folk can one rightly call oneself an “evangelist?”

The Feldschlößchen Urbock on special at Aldi is 💯. • Preiswerte deutsches Bier ist immer noch deutsches Bier… Lecker!

Public Service Announcement • This is not a test. • Deutsche Küche has arrived at Aldi! • 🇩🇪🍺🥨

Toddler prayers: “God, help me not be scared. Help me no sharks. Amen.” 🦈

The Christian God is the Lord of peace, life, and comfort. Early Christians were pacifists and refused to take up arms. What did they know about the relationship between weapons, Empire, power, violence, and Evil that could guide us today?

If my “hobby” were used by unstable, sick people in acts of terrorism and death, I think I would reevaluate my involvement in it.

Nota bene: I currently don’t vote Republican, either. • I’m just saying it would be great to have a party I could vote for without ethical dilemmas. At the present moment, I think it would be a shorter walk for the Democrats to reach a life-affirming political ethic.

You know, if Democrats would take a fully pro-life stance — anti-abortion, anti-death penalty, anti-war — they might just get some good Christians to switch their vote. I know I’d vote solidly Democratic if I didn’t have to contend with ethical implications of supporting murder.

My tricky toddler found out how to extend bed time. Me (at door): “Night, night. Daddy loves you.” Rosemary (with a devious smile): “Daddy, where’s God?”

Seriously was a good conversation. Just don’t get why these questions only come at bedtime. 😀
